Work is an important aspect of our lives for several reasons.
It enables us to be self-sustainable so we can cover our living expenses, enjoy community activities, and save for future vacations and weekend get-aways.
It is the place where most of our social contacts are initiated and developed.
It is the main source of future work referrals since most employers fill job openings from references of friends, colleagues, and staff already employed within their organization.
Autism Unites includes vocational supports as a key element of their residential program.

LAVAArts will also be developing self-sustainable micro-enterprises based our young adults interests, experience, and aptitudes.
